Meditation Urban Retreats

You can do meditation retreats in the town – there’s no need to disappear to a cave! For those interested in deepening their meditation experience, the Centre offers regular one-day urban retreats. Retreats are designed to help us focus exclusively on a particular meditation practice without the normal distractions of everyday life. You are welcome to come to all the sessions or however many you can make.

If you haven’t attended a retreat before and/or are new to Kadampa Buddhism, please email for advice before attending these retreats.

Cost is £3 per session or £10 per full-day / half-day retreat £7 (unless stated otherwise)

Please email for more information on these retreats.
